Identifying Flowering Plants (SELL)

Date/Time
Date(s) - 26 Jun 2015 until 28 Jun 2015
10:00 AM - 5:00 PM


Ideal for professional development and anyone simply fascinated by plants and ecology.

Tutor: Margaret Howells

Examine specimens and become familiar with the huge variety of flower and leaf forms and the equally huge and often confusing terminology used in the wild flower books and `keys’. You will be given the confidence to use a `flora’ and `keys’ and identify unknown flowering plant species on your own. Emphasis will be on practical skills, with examination and identification taking place mainly in the laboratory but with excursions around the venue to put new found knowledge to the test! This is an excellent background for anyone interested in both wild and garden plants. Come and enjoy!

Fee: £100 (£80 if you book early / £5 Fee waiver)
